Welcome, new member!

We are so excited you're choosing to join us!
Lakes Area Writers Alliance Member Badge - no year

Lakes Area Writers Alliance is a (pending) 501c3 nonprofit and our goal has always been to be a supportive, encouraging group of writers who meet regularly to hone their writing skills. We admire your desire to become a better writer and we’re here to help. Along with membership, you receive regular emails—info relating to workshops, contests, etc. You can read your work at one of our meetings and be critiqued if you choose.

Monthly meetings are held the 3rd Saturday each month, starting at 10am. 

For most of 2020, you will find the meetings are being held virtually on our Facebook Page and in our Members Only Facebook Group. We also host monthly virtual Zoom accountability meetings for our members who are interested in participating.
